Modular Scalability
Uqbar aims to achieve scalability by implementing a modular blockchain, breaking state transition into its three constituent parts and optimizing each individually. These elements are:
  1. 1.
    Execution: the mechanism that computes the state change of the ledger, validating proposed transactions
  2. 2.
    Data Availability: access to current and previous states of the chain, as well as the transactions used to compute the new state of the chain
  3. 3.
    Settlement: the unification of the previous chain state, verified transactions, and the newly computed chain state, resulting in a confirmed, agreed-upon ledger
